Ohio Northern held its 39th Annual Law Review Symposium Friday afternoon to discuss the ever-evolving legal system. The theme of this years symposium was the constantly changing world of technology and its impact on privacy.
A panel of experts spoke to a mix of students, alumni and attorneys about the impact technology has on the 21st century and how it affects the legal system. One of the experts that spoke at the event was professor tom w. Bell.. He discussed copyright and the privacy of authors. He says the law is always advancing and the symposium is a good way to discuss these changes
"You've got to have a lot of ideas out there to find the good ones. We never know beforehand which ones will work and so we see which of the fit ones survive," Tom W. Bell, professor at Chapman University Fowler School of Law, said. "I think it's important for students to see too that the law is not just a bunch of rules written in a book. It is evolving and it evolves from people talking about what they want to see happen."
Bell says he thinks students enjoy hearing different aspects of the law and he had a good response from both students and faculty.
